Been a long time

It has been a long time since I posted something here.  I thought for sure that I was going to do my usual Top 10 CDs of the year routine like I usually do, but I just didn’t get around to it.  Of course, now that I have said that, I will probably end up doing a list, but I’m not sure if I listened to enough music in 2010 to even have a good idea of what I think the best stuff would be.

For a long time, it wasn’t even that I didn’t have anything to write about, it was more just that I didn’t feel like writing.  I didn’t feel like expressing anything to anybody.  I certainly didn’t want to sit in front of a computer.  Maybe my divorce had something to do with that.  Maybe not, but either way, it was what it was and I didn’t want to hear the clicking of the keyboard.

So since I have been away, I went to Cuba, grew a beard whilst in Cuba, came back from Cuba, kept the beard (the ladies loved it…but I trimmed it a bit so I didn’t look like I came back from Cuba on a raft), turned the beard into a goatee for a week, handlebars for a night and then brought back the old soul patch.  I’ve reminded myself how much I love reading magazines and have just started to have a better appreciation for taking things nice and easy in life.  There seem to be so many things that I concerned myself with before that I just don’t find important anymore.

So anyway, without taking this way out into left field, I think I am going to start writing again.  To an audience of one? Maybe.  But right now, that’s all I need.

    I’ve been perusing your old posts, and I can’t help but see the irony in my commenting on an entry where you talk about your post-divorce life a mere week and a half before my marriage imploded. Funny how life works.

    Nothing wrong with some irony once in a while. Yeah, I heard about things and have to say I’m sorry to hear about things. Hopefully you’ve ended up in a good place like I have. We should catch some music again…if you don’t mind hanging with somebody you know from the other side :)
